Online Gambling: Deposits and Withdrawals

New Jersey online casinos offer players a wide range of deposit and withdrawal options. While New Jersey gambling laws permit various banking options for casino deposits, the most popular method is still credit or debit card. New Jersey online casinos also accept cash at their Cage in Atlantic City.
New Jersey online casino players can choose from several methods for withdrawals, including check by mail, ACH/eCheck, Neteller, and PayPal. Some banks can take up to five business days to process withdrawals. New Jersey online casino players can also withdraw winnings in person at the Cage in Atlantic City.

What Banking Methods Can I Use?

The most popular banking options for deposits and withdrawals at New Jersey online casinos are as follows:

  1. PlayPlus Card
  2. PayPal
  3. Skrill
  4. Credit/Debit
  5. E-check/ACH
  6. Bank Transfer
  7. Cash at Casino Gate
    However, some online betting casinos do not permit the use of credit cards as a deposit/withdrawal option. This is because payment providers (banks) do not view online gambling as a legal purchase. Rather they treat it as a cash advance charge, which incurs fees.
    Players who still wish to use credit cards for deposits are advised to fund their e-wallets (PayPal, Skrill) from their credit cards before making deposits online with the e-wallets.

How Quickly Can I Cash Out?

Although it does not take a lengthy time to cash out, it is noteworthy that cashing out online is not an instantaneous process. There are two reasons for this. First, each online casino has its own timetable and will need time to process withdrawal requests; typically they will get this done in 2-3 business days. During this time, a bettor is allowed to cancel the request.
The second reason is that there are variations from one payment method to the other. Some take a longer time than others to complete the process. Listed below are some popular payment methods and the estimated duration for deposits/withdrawals.

Payment Method Withdrawal Time
E-wallet 1-3 Business Days
Bank Transfers 5-8 Business Days
Instant eCheck (ACH) 1-4 Business Days
PayPal 1 Business Day
Skrill Within 24 hours once approved
Cash at Cage Instantly (provided verification requirements are fulfilled)
Credit/Debit Cards 3-6 Business Days (direct withdrawal not recommended)

Depending on how quickly an account holder responds to issues related to the verification process, withdrawals may take less time or a longer time. Therefore, the list (withdrawal methods and duration time) above is just an estimate based on New Jersey casinos using those options.

Can I Track My Deposits and Withdrawals?

Yes. Players can keep track of their deposits and withdrawals through the transaction details provided by their payment provider or their online betting accounts.

What Makes Online Casino Deposits Safe?

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of online casinos available, and some of them do not operate at the high standard necessary to keep players’ funds secure. To identify online casinos in New Jersey safe to deposit with, here are some characteristics potential depositors should look out for.

Fast and Reliable Banking

One of the hallmarks of a trustworthy online casino is how quickly payouts are made and the reliability of cash deposits. A casino that does not make cashouts a priority by ensuring that payments are made as at when due leaves room for doubts in the minds of its customers.
Furthermore, safe online casinos where players can comfortably deposit their money are usually transparent about the payment methods available. Such casinos provide several options for easy, quick, and transparent withdrawal of funds. On the other hand, casinos with questionable reputations can be identified by the limited payment options available to players---usually check, cash, or wire transfer that allow them to build up an account balance. Additionally, online casinos that are safe for deposits are usually upfront about the rules and charges governing deposits and withdrawals on their system.

Good Reputation

Dependable online casinos do not joke with their reputation as this could jeopardize their license and make them unattractive for deposits from new players. Players can ascertain the status of an online operator's reputation by digging online and reading reviews from reliable sources.

Licensed Casinos

Casinos licensed by the industry regulator pose the least risk to deposits. Such casinos are regulated and operated in line with the highest standards concerning safety, transparency, and fair play.

Customer Support

A trustworthy and honorable online casino will always be available to respond to questions and complaints from players. The most reliable casinos provide live support, facilitating players' access to customer service representatives. A gambling operator who provides an email address as the only option for players to make inquiries is not establishment where players should deposit money.

Website Design

A properly designed and user-friendly website inspires confidence and suggests that the casino operators have invested adequate resources in their operations. On the other hand, a website that looks like a poorly done design project by a trainee web designer is unlikely to inspire confidence and players who play on such an online casino risk losing their money.

Security Features

To open an account for online gambling, players must provide sensitive personal data such as name, date of birth, and payment details. If this information gets into the wrong hands (fraudsters), players stand to lose money. Therefore, a safe online casino would invest heavily in the latest SSL encryption technology to keep players' personal details and funds secure. Gamers can check if a casino uses SSL technology by reading the terms and conditions section on its website.
